, a picture of him and michelle obama hugging saying four more years and then again this personal tweet signed by the president saying as you say "we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned and that's who we are. thank you, signed b.o., barack obama, it is electric here at campaign headquarters in chicago. they are crying tears but different from the tears of the romney tears hq. people hugging each other, very excited. there was a lot of concern that the economic problems that the country was having and the difficulties president obama was having with certain demographic groups was going to mean this would be a very long night. it turns out not so long after all. this is the third president in a row who has been re-elected and he did it using the same strategy of the previous president, george w. bush, the president who he blames for so many of the troubles that still are a problem for him today, problems for the american people today, he had a -- george w. bush fought for re-election even though the public was ambivalent about him because of the war in iraq. he did it by making the
, with some of the emotion as both candidates were wrapping up those speeches last night. michelle obama, i thought, as well, was, was emotional, more emotional certainly than i've heard her before, when she was talking to the crowd. let's play a little bit of that. >>> the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. and a lot of folks were wondering whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? that's what people were worrying about. and that is what barack faced on day one as president of the united states. >> how emotional has this last tour for the president and michelle obama been? >> it's been very emotional. and last night, when i watched some of that i found myself walking away from the television, i know michelle obama's family very well. her family roots, on her father's side, or right here in south carolina and georgetown county, which was a part of my congressional district, so i understand that emotion ap. so those emotions, you get wrapped up here and then you lay your heart out, and you know that you were not dealt a hand
well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama,
the president's ground game one day out. first lady michelle obama is rallying supporters in north carolina and florida, while ann romney will join her husband at tonight's rally in new hampshire. be sure to check out our "news nation" tumblr page. you'll find behind the scene pictures this election day eve at newsnation.tumblr.com. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but, dad, you've got... [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >>> so when digging through our final nbc/"wall street journal" poll before the election, our first read team noticed some familiar numbers. for one, the president is exactly where george w. bush was at this point in the national race. both incumbents at 48% and the challengers at 47%. bush was at 49% at the time in 2008. obviously, all good news for president obama. wrong year. let's go to mark murray to discuss trends. we have to talk about the breaking news. governor romney going to cleveland, ohio, pittsbur
letterman, michelle obama and her interviews -- jay leno, david letterman, michelle obama and her interviews. host: where do you get that figure? caller: it was a tv show at the end of september. this man was a guest, i do not remember his name. host: prediction time. give me the electoral college vote and popular vote. caller: i am afraid of obama, he has got too much dirty stuff behind him. but i hope that they make romney the president. host: we have this from joseph ramirez -- host: we have the extensive story this morning from the front page of "the washington post." here is the breakdown in congress. "voters seem likely to opt for the status quo." host: there is a look at the breakdown. a reminder, we will have live coverage of a mitt romney rally this afternoon in pennsylvania, and the president as he campaigns in florida. mark is joining us from homestead, florida. prediction time, who is going to win and why? caller, for the first time i went from democrat to independent and i voted republican. when i went to the polls that i was undecided on yesterday, right when i got in, i felt l
the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe
of president obama. then senator obama and his wife michelle obama. it was meant to be satirical and make fun of the racial biases out there. man, it hit a lot of block voters in the gut of how dare you? i think a lot of what we've seen in the years since then continue to make folks feel at that way. >> yes. one of the oddities about obama's, president obama's whole first term has been all this racial branding. i mean, people have purposefully and this is something that very few black mayors see and very few black congress people see where people go after you on the basis of race. they're clear that that's what they're doing. they're racially branding you, hitler pictures of you, they're talking about congo this and sending back to this. >> it is a -- it's like a big -- like a racial shoutout. -- >> a reverse image. i think that's unusual. that's why we're in partly in this difficulty. also, what i worry about on this election is people saying, hey, i did the right thing once. i've done my thin. i'm a good person. you'll never be able to -- i did all i can do. >> it's not a therapy session. w
weights as well. michelle obama tweeting four years ago our country elected @ barack obama. let's do it again. new hampshire governor john lynch asked who they would rather see kid rock at the monday romney event in new hampshire or bill clinton. is the tweet from junk lynch. @ joe trippi says that although both campaigns believe they can get over 300 electoral votes someone is right and someone is very wrong. well, said by joe trippi. go to fox news .com for complete online and social media coverage. we have that all for you on tuesday night. >>> we see so many polls in the lead up to a presidential election but just how accurate are they in predicting who wins and why do they vary so widely? check out the two national polls taken over pretty much the same time period. national journal has the president up by five points but the gallup polling company has governor romney up by five. exactly the opposite. we also have shown you the average of national polls and they all even out and it is a dead heat and for a little color just days before the 1980 election jimmy carter was up six po
after michelle obama spoke. he looked sad at that point. i can understand why. he had adoring crowds four years ago. he has a tough time now scaring up a decent-sized crowd. i think a lot of democrats are not in to him or his solutions or a faith that he needs to get done for america. they are not crazy presidental tern tiff for voting for romney but they are not into obama at this time. >> leslie they talk about how obama's pollster told him early on that hope and change could not be recycled in a country the way so many americans are, the unemployment rate and so on and they decided to go negative, they decided they had to quote, kill mitt romney. the theory of th is that president obama didn't really love doing that. he loved the hope and change but he knew he had to do what he had to do to get reelected. he's trying to change the message in the last few days to get more positive but a number of americans are wondering what happened. >> thank you dr. larson. when you have over 10,000 people at a rally in ohio i wouldn't say they were begging people to come. i wish i could get ten
and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m
michelle obama and other surrogates have been there, but it is quite remarkable it would be this close, unless there had been a lot going on under the surface and in mobilizing the obama voters that maybe we haven't been able to see. >> and by all other reports, gwen, it was a big republican year. the republicans returned the governorship. the democratic governor did not seek reelection. the republicans won the governorship. i think the republicans expected to pick up a couple of house see the, and yet this presidential race-- >> there had been a possibility and again we don't know who the win the election, there had been the thought that president obama would win the electoral and not the popular but with the closeness in state like north carolina, that seems less likely. >> woodruff: i'd like to see the colorado numbers if we can get those up in a few minute. we haven't seen where things stand right now. ray suarez in chicago with the obama campaign. ray displai you know, gwen, people have been filing in here all night and starting to pay very close attention to the returns coming in
since 1966. [instrumental of o christmas tree] ♪ >> first lady michelle obama, her daughters and their dog came out to watch the arrival. president obama was not on hand. he took advantage of the nice weather to play his first round of golf in several months. >> happy thanksgiving, everybody. >> i think we will take it. it is a go. it is good. we can have christmas now. well done. >> how does it look? >> it is gorgeous. it is perfect. we are going to take it. you all take care. >> here is some of what we have coming up for you today here on c-span. nobel laureate and burmese opposition leader aung san suu kyi excess the congressional gold medal, followed by another congressional gold medal ceremony with professional golfer arnold palmer. later, african-american photographers talk about the integrity of photojournalism. watch the history of the presidential appointment process at george mason university tonight at 9:00 eastern here on c-span. >> i can remember barack obama's speech in 2004. the democratic national convention, this dazzling speech that instantly makes him a nat
, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaigns still view it as a battle ground. we can see that by where they put their money. the obama campaign made a renewed effort, i guess you could call it a final push in florida by buying up more ad time there. i
winners and there you have dr. jill biden and michelle obama as well. >> watch it on tv in the suite. go back to the hall in chicago right now. the crowd is getting very revved up. video of president obama on the screen. jake tapper, what else are you seeing? >> right now we have to say, they're clearly getting ready for the president to come out. remarks were put out the they are running as they have been for several hours now, these videos that have been a very popular part of the obama campaign. with supporters. they have been, running them. this of course is the famous fired up, ready to go speech, which president obama likes to tell at the end of his campaigns. he did it in 2008. he did, guess, last night in des moines, possible that was last night. last night in des moines he told the story about a little old lady at a campaign stop during desperate time for his campaign. and you hear president obama chanting, fired up, ready to go. the crowd very excited. a smaller cr eer crowd than we d to. >> president obama expected to come out. >> now, look at this. >> george, they're raising
, the nation's next first lady, michelle obama. [applause] sasha and amalia, i love you both more than you can't imagine it. and you have earned a new puppy that is coming with us to the white house. [applause] while she is no longer with us, i know my grandmother is watching. along with the family that made me who i am, i miss them tonight. i know my debt to them is beyond measure. to my campaign manager, david plouffe, my chief strategist, david axelrod, and the best campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics -- you made this happen, and i am forever grateful for what you've sacrificed to get it done. but above all, i will never forget who this victory truly belongs to -- it belongs to you. i was never the likeliest candidate for this office. we didn't start with much money or many endorsements. our campaign was not hatched in the halls of washington -- it began in the backyards of des moines and the living rooms of concord and the front porches of charleston. it was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give $5 and $10 and $20 to this cause
foot in his mouth. he can't fade with dignity off the stage. we're equal opportunity. we put michelle obama on there for her obesity program. people are still eating haagen-dazs. >> we need to do more. >> ryan lochte and bobby valentine. >> not a great year for lance. >> not a great year. >> so you also go through a lot of different things. you talk to marco rubio. went to iowa this past week. >> i actually did the interview with rubio in little havana. >> what do you think? >> i was going to ask you. i think he's a fascinating guy. modest. has all the right things. one thing that sticks out for me if he's really going to be a 2016 guy, he is like obama in many ways but he doesn't have the national profile yes. john, the question for you as well, what's rubio going to run on in 2016? >> i think he's got -- look, in this moment of republican rehabilitation and rethinking, they are looking for leaders and what happens over the course of the next couple of years, what role he plays, what profile, he's starting to push his own version of immigration reform. he'll get associated with sever
there and you see michelle obama and dr. jill biden greeting each other as well. what struck most of us in the news room about this picture was this really doesn't seem to be a scene of jubilation. it seems to be a scene of relief, heavy sigh, if you will, felt in that room at the moment that the president understood he had won four more years at the whitehouse. let's go back to mccormick place as we are with the crowd there waiting for the president to step out. bob. >> well, you know, i've covered a lot of campaigns in my time and it's always more fun to be with the winner than it is with the loser. there's nothing quite as sad or as sad a places to be, to be in the campaign headquarters of the guy that lost. it's just tough on everybody. >> i think that's why you saw the whitehouse particularly chose that picture. they did not want to look like they are spiking the ball. and even gave axelrod an interview they did not want to appear they were celebrating too early and not tush sor to be sof gracious. having fought campaigns before people know what it's like to be on the losing side.
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
speaker out there on the campaign trail. >> she is and what strikes me about michelle obama and ann romney is not doing feel-good speeches. they're talking about policy and, you know, they carry a dagger as i like to say, wrapped in velvet which is what she was doing talking about the auto bailout and mitt romney. so, very political speech. >> very passionate. >> passionate speech. she's become an enormous asset for this president. not only for him personally but her stature has grown over time. i think it grew in part because she warmed up and she also had a softer side. more feminine side. i was a little surprised by the tone of the speech but listen. >> tough. >> it's a last 24 hours. a lot of passions. they're tired. i think all is forgiven. >> gloria, romney making a surprise trip tomorrow to pennsylvania, another one to ohio. do you think it makes a difference? >> well, in talking to people on his staff, they say it will. first of all, no early voting in pennsylvania. so they're not up against the machine there. secondly, i was talking to someone on his staff saying to me today that
parker? did you get an e-mail from michelle obama calling you friend? did you get a banner ad for a campaign when you were surfing the net? turns out you were targeted for these things by a sophisticated campaign technique called data mining, an effort to find out who individual voters are and how they'll respond to campaign messages. >> the goal is to come up with an individual level statistical prediction of your likelihood of supporting their candidate or of casting a ballot at all. >> then they target you for ads. the obama campaign is widely believed to have had the most sophisticated data mining operation central to his election victory this year. getting people out to vote who might not have otherwise. "time" magazine profiled it with a picture of the data crunchers working in a room called the cave. analysts say campaigns do this by going to commercial data warehouses which compile information on your buying habits, like what magazines you subscribe to. maybe information on where and how you like to travel. campaigns cross reference that with demographic information li
in afghanistan at the time. that nonfactual story from michele bachmann about the cost of obama's trip which started by by an unnamed source on an india news website and got into the either there. we can't talk about conspiracy theories without rush limbaugh. first day of the republican convention was canceled due to hurricane isaac. rush floated the idea that president obama was somehow involved with the weather reports showing that tampa might get hit. >> got a hurricane coming. the national hurricane center which is a government agency, is very hopeful that the hurricane gets near tampa. the national hurricane center is obama. it's the national weather service. part of the commerce department. it's obama. i can see obama sending fema in advance of the hurricane hitting tampa so that the republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in tampa, a bunch of rv's and stuff. make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there. >> was he laughing at his own b.s. there? did you ever think that rush limbaugh would us of a skewed weather report? yeah actually. next, here g
and michelle obama who she is and can make america who we need to be with only if we focus to prioritize that. i saw that when he came into office and we were on the verge of potentially a second great depression people were focused on the stimulus and he said we can't pass the bill, an economic recovery build a central focus on education both investment and reform from early learning to head start to the kate wolf and post secondary. he's also had a consistent dissatisfaction with the status quo. it goes back education before comfortable with how we are doing he knows the kids across the country are getting shortchanged because we haven't done well enough and he has been a change agent to make changes in education. and he's always listened to people on the ground. i've been with him in new orleans before he was president listening to students and city members and what's actually going on. the believe has been translated into a core education policy agenda that i think has been very not only important but in some ways unique in recent days education. he shifted the role in many ways to focus
others. >> the picture, if darlene is correct, her argument that on the literature was michelle obama. that her support was clearly used in a campaign. >> so i think a combination of those things has really moved forward. >> thanks very much to the panel. it's a great discussion. [applause] >> thank you. [applause] >> thanks everyone for coming. goodnight. >> thank you. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> the mindset of the world well into the mid-1990s was that wireline access with stuff either on polls poles are buried on the ground was the key to understanding competition in telecommunications. the intriguing part of the wireless story is how very few people inside the industry, that is why the mckinsey report came out the way it did -- though was that it wasn't just judge green and the fcc who did not understand the potential of wireless. it was the entire industry except for a few visionaries who were sort of regard it as kooks. and so, what turned out to be the case was that the hope that some people had that you could have a robustly
president's play a very important role in advising them. nancy reagan was very influential, michelle obama. but that influence is not across the board. it is not systematic. if they see a particular person or they say this person is really on your side or don't trust this person, selectively, they have a lot of clout. i think it is used very selectively because they are not interested across the board, they are interested in specific people. in limited areas, like any trusted adviser of the president would have. >> part of the assumption is that every time there is a change in administration, there is new personnel. most of these democratic and republican administration have government in waiting and they are a retread from one job to another, and should that shorten the process? >> they do have to go through the whole of fbi investigation for every appointment which just doesn't make sense. but your broader point that there are farm teams out there, think tanks, universities, businesses, that is true. if you start at one level, get some experience, maybe you're qualified for a higher leve
presidential race, michelle. 85% has gone to support romney or to oppose president obama. 85% of the money is going against the president, yet he's edging ahead. >> it has been remarkable how much money has been spent and how much influence the outside groups have had. so it's going to be interesting to see the morning after this whether this is seen as like the cycle of the super pac triumph and a new way that these things are going to run or if obama pulls it out, whether this is going to be seen as a lot of wasted money on the part of folks like sheldon adelson. >> what is the danger of this, richard, in terms of this all of this money? or will it be rethought if, in fact, the president is deterred? >> well, a lot of promises were made to those super wealthy people that it would be affected. they are going to have to go back after all, most of them are super wealthy people and ask were those promises ever delivered? never mind about who wins. every dollar that they have spent has gone less far than the campaign. they don't get the same ad rates. so a dollar of the koch money is not the
. obama and first lady michelle thanked the state that really launched his presidential campaign when he won the caucuses in 2008. >> it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. all of it depends on what you do, when you step into that voting booth tomorrow it's just a remarkable thing the way our democracy works, and at a certain point all this effort and all these campaign rallies, then it just comes down to each of us as citizens. >> reporter: this morning the president congratulated mitt romney on what he called a spirited campaign and thanked the american people whose decency and goodness is a source of great optimism. jenna: great wrap-up for us. great to know that bruce springsteen is such a great fan of fox news. didn't no that. jon: i think i could write better lyrics. jenna: i know you can sing. jon: i'll give it a try. i don't think he'll be calling me. i'll give it a try. take a live look at a polling station in ohio, the battle ground state expected to play a pivotal role in the presidential outcome. this looks suspiciously like tape. but i'm sure it's just into the fox news ta
in both the public and private sector. and to his right is michele flournoy who was very relieved ththe undersecretary of defense for policy in the obama administration, senior advisor to the president's reelection campaign, and is also cofounder of the center for a new american security. and maybe i will start it off with a question for both of you and then we'll go to the audience. secretaries that time, it seems to me that one of the biggest differences between governor romney and president obama at least in the public statements is in terms of the style of american leadership in the world. and governor romney has made it clear he believes the presence of leadership is not the right approach and is perhaps undercut american security. so can you talk about specifically how the romney administration would approach the american role of the world, how it would deal differently? and then perhaps secretary flournoy after to defend the obama administration's approach and why you think governor romney's criticism is not founded. >> well, i agree that there's clear differences in style. there
. thanks. it was one of the tightest races of the night. did michelle bachmann hold on to her seat in congress in minnesota? >> brian: then what did president obama do better than mitt romney? our panel is digging into the winning strategy. 12347 amid a fragile economy and high unemployment and high gas prices, president obama scored a victory over mitt romney last night. stealing his re-- sealing his reelection bid. in the end, what were the keys to victory? why did mitt romney fall short? let's ask our political panel, lady lynn is chief executive of the holding company, el rothschild, a democratic strategist and douglas is president of the american action forum and former director of the congressional budget office. i guess that means you know how to crunch numbers. lot of number crunching going on last night. but in the end, maybe you didn't really need to crunch them so much, douglas, because obama won pretty easily. >> it is one of the remarkable things that the end, the race looked like it looked a year ago, despite all the campaigning and money spent, that the polls going i
is obamacare. most seniors have no idea that president obama's plan is that medicare will go away and senior citizens will go into obamacare. most seniors understand that obamacare will mean a deny of care for seniors. that is not what i mean. >> michele bachmann wants to eliminate both medicare and social security. >> that is wrong. he just made a false statement. >> can i talk please? here's the situation. we have to say this to programs to get serious. i put on the floor that let's raise the social security cap. the rabbit and it takes social security for many years. seniors will have insurance that they can retire that they have earned. on the other time, we have to attack the issue on the cost side and be willing to negotiate with pharmaceuticals. michele bachmann is ready to do that. >> these are false statements and assertions. what i have worked on is to make sure we say social security, save medicare. we have to reform. medicare is 50 years old. we have to update the way we deliver high-quality health care. we have to make sure its is there for kids who are coming. beforene knows we
